A Master Plan for the Development of Vocational-Technical Education In New Mexico.
Sterling Inst., Washington, DC.
This master plan for vocational education in New Mexico is the result of a study conducted by professional education consultants. The following areas were examined during the study: (1) New Mexico's present manpower problems, (2) market trends of future industrial potential, (3) state resources capable of attracting new industry, (4) adequacy of existing programs and facilities in vocational education, (5) construction needs, and (6) financing. In response to the expected needs of both students and industry, the consultant recommended an emphasis on "basic learning skills" rather than on subject matter. Other recommendations include: (1) the establishment of a state-level occupational readiness group to help extend the short supply of guidance services throughout the State, (2) new installations to serve large areas and provide for possible post-secondary programs, and (3) state operational and financial responsibility for vocational education.
